Here's one i did, it seems that folks can read all sorts of things into the meaning of it.



this is realy lovely and deep thinking art... very deatiled and full of emotions

Have you heard of the German Artist/Writer Walter Moers?

Very much like his style. And I like.

Very stylish

It looks great. I love the sketchy yet tight style you have going on there. I also like how you use that sketchiness to make the body of the robot(or whatever) more busy than it actually is. It creates fake details witch looks good in here. The piece looks good as concept art but I can imagine that this picture would look a lot cooler if you would add some kind of background if even a vague one. Unfortunately it also looks a little bit too flat. Kind of like a cardboard figure. I suggest you play a bit more with shadows while colouring and rely less on the shadowing of the black lines. Right now it does not give me the feeling that it should be 3-dimensional although I understand that with your cartoony style its a bit harder to accomplish but I have looked at your other works and I can see that you can do it. Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot for your very detailed response, I'm glad you had some good to things to say about it as well as some solid constructive criticism. The importance of black and shadows can be very significant.



I really like the message this is sending. Though it may be unintentional, it seems to portray a sense of human destruction and indifference. I really like all the detail you put into this as well. You're very talented, good sir.


reminds me of the movie howls moving castle
